I live in Malatya Turkey and for the semester break want to go to Antalya and Izmir/Efes before I go to Istanbul.
Is this realistic?
Ride bus from Malatya to Antalya (18 hour ride)
Stay to see friends in Antalya (stay 2 nights)
Go to Izmir by bus to see Efes (stay 1 night) - how long a bus ride to Izmir from Antala?
Fly from Izmir to Istanbul (no touring in Istanbul, going there to catch flight to US)
